Retail giant Walmart is now offering streaming video rentals right from its website. Having acquired the VUDU streaming video service last year, Walmart is now mainstreaming (pun intended) its streaming service by making it available front and center on the Walmart.com site.
While some consider this a direct challenge to Netflix, and their streaming service, Walmart is charging $3.99 per video streamed, while Netflix’ streaming-only service is $7.99 per month, with no limit to the number of videos you can stream.
